I was recently contacted by Anova Culinary to evaluate their new offering on the home immersion circulator market. They were nice enough to send me one of their Sous Vide Circulators which I’ve been using for a couple of weeks now. Can a $200 circulator stand up against the old guard? How does it compare to the DIY builds detailed here at eatdrinkEXPERIENCE.com and SeattleFoodGeek.com? Find out after the jump!

Ajitama (Soy Sauce Marinated) Deviled Eggs

I’ve written about pressure cooked eggs before… Here is a new variation. This is an Asian spin on deviled eggs inspired by a $2 appetizer a David Chang’s Noodle Bar in the east village of Manhattan. A simple recipe that you can make for any event that requires, or would be enhanced with, deviled eggs. Recipe after the jump!

#MasterChef Memoirs Pt.8: EPIC events leading up to the TOP 18!

clip_image002“The Pre-Egg Challenge” 2.11.11: Last season, the first cooking challenge was to create a dish featuring a single egg. There’s lots of speculation on what this year’s version will be. Potato and chicken are popular theories. On the morning of the 11th, we are taken in small groups to a “food safety” class. We arrive near the Beverley Center and the Casting PA’s walk us to a small cooking school. Sandee is there! We are cooking! It turns out that this “Food Safety” course is a impromptu “informal” cooking challenge!

Easter Egg

Easter Eggs

I’m guessing, unless you were in Roses, Spain that you didn’t find any Easter Eggs like this in your yard today. Before we go any further, I have to give FULL credit for this idea to my friend Yi Lynne Weber. She conceptualized the entire dish, I merely executed.

Remember when “Easter Egg” referred to hidden extras on a DVD? That’s like what this dish is… for memicking, surprises, fun!

Brunch With Bobby and Wylie…

So, I didn’t have brunch with these two gentlemen as the post title suggests… but this is what I think Bobby Flay and Wylie Dufresne would cook for brunch if they were collaborating… That would be a brunch that I’d like an invite to! The Ingredient list left to right: Blue Corn Meal, half and half, scallions, Beef “Cowboy steak” (Rib Eye), eggs, Activa RM (aka transglutaminase, aka meat glue), jalapeño, huitlacoche, and butter.
